MERCURY RISING

ALEC BALDWIN (Lt. Colonel Nicholas Kudrow), one of Hollywood's most charismatic actors, is both an accomplished film star and an award-winning stage actor. Equally compelling as both a leading man and character actor, Baldwin has brought depth and conviction to numerous characters.

A native of Long Island, the actor's successful career began on television, appearing in such episodic programs as the popular daytime soap opera "The Doctors," "Knot's Landing" and the miniseries "Dress Grey." Most recently, he earned an Emmy nomination and a Golden Globe nomination for his work in the CBS television production of "A Streetcar Named Desire" opposite Jessica Lange, John Goodman and Diane Lane.

Having received the Theater World Award for his performance of Joe Orton's "Loot," Baldwin went on to star in numerous stage productions such as David Mamet's "A Life in the Theater," Broadway's "Serious Money" and in the 1992 revival of Tennessee Williams' "A Streetcar Named Desire," for which he received a Best Actor Tony Award nomination. He received an Obie Award in 1991 for his performance in "Prelude To A Kiss."

His eclectic mix of film roles includes the narcissistic best friend in She's Having A Baby, the yuppie ghost in Tim Burton's Beetlejuice, the hitman Frankie "The Cucumber" DeMarco in Jonathan Demme's Married To The Mob, the slick radio station manager in Oliver Stone's Talk Radio, Melanie Griffiths' philandering boyfriend in Mike Nichols' Working Girl and a young bible-thumping Jimmy Swaggart in Great Balls of Fire.

Among his additional film credits are the critically acclaimed box-office hit The Hunt for Red October, Woody Allen's Alice, the film version of David Mamet's Pulitzer Prize-winning play Glengarry Glen Ross, Harold Becker's Malice, The Getaway, which also starred his wife, Kim Basinger, The Shadow, The Juror, Heaven's Prisoners and Ghosts of Mississippi, and most recently, The Edge, opposite Anthony Hopkins.
